    Can you do a back to back Disney cruise? If yes, do you have to get off the ship between voyages? Do 2023 sailings come out in the fall? Thank you

    Hi Lisa!

    Welcome back...so glad you cruised back by planDisney again! What’s better than one Disney cruise? Well, TWO of course! I totally agree with your plan to book back-to-back sailings.

    The answer to all of your questions is YES! Guests can certainly do back-to-back cruises. It’s a great way to both get the number of cruise nights desired PLUS credit for two sailings instead of just one for Castaway Club status.

    You will have to exit the ship temporarily while it is checked by port authorities. However, you can count on being some of the first Guests to get back on the ship once it is cleared for your second itinerary! I suggest bringing a carry on bag filled with books, toys, and activities to keep little kiddos busy in the cruise terminal before the “All Aboard” call by Captain Mickey. 

    I’ve never had the good fortune of experiencing back-to-back cruises, but one benefit I’ve been told is how much fun it is to wander around the ship before any of the new Guests arrive. It’s a perfect time to take photos while few people are onboard and to just relax and enjoy the relatively uncrowded ship. 

    Here’s a planDisney tip: if you haven’t already made arrangements for your stateroom for both cruises, I highly recommend enlisting the help of a Disney Cruise Line Vacation Planning Specialist or Travel Agent to keep the same stateroom. In the past, the major advantage to this is not having to pack up your belongings. Plus, you’ll be able to access your stateroom sooner than 1:30 P.M. when staterooms traditionally open to all Guests. However, if you prefer to change staterooms, you will pack your luggage and leave it in your first stateroom, and then the Stateroom Host will move it to your new stateroom. 

    Finally, I anticipate that early 2023 voyages will be available for booking sometime this fall. This has become more of a guessing game this year than in previous years; typically, the new itineraries are released 15-18 months in advance. Stay tuned to updates posted on Disney Cruise Line and the Disney Parks Blog. I’m sure there will be plenty of fanfare when these become open for booking!

    Lisa, with all this information in hand, I hope that you are convinced to make that back-to-back Disney cruise reservation. 

    Happy Sailing!
